Queenstown, New Zealand. Known as the adventure capital of the World! But what if your kids are too young for bungy jumping or sky-diving and too bored to watch while you do it? Well here we list our top tips for the ultimate itinerary for families in Queenstown!

Number 1

Grab some breakfast at Brazz on Athol Street. It’s family friendly, incredibly well priced and has a menu that will satisfy even the pickiest little eaters. Better still, it’s practically next door to a handy little car park (also on Athol Street). Once you’re fed and watered, head back to the car and head out of town!

Number 2

Just a short drive out of town, Remarkables Park is you’re next stop. Game Over to be precise. The home to New Zealand’s best Indoor Kart Racing, Lazer Tag and arcade. Game Over is a family’s paradise… you’ll come head to head with a Triceratops as soon as you walk in! Then it’s time to choose your activities… with the arcade starting from $1 there’s something for the whole family. We even have free wi-fi so you can keep in touch while the kids play!

Number 3

Every Game Over customer gets 20% at SITE trampoline which is just a short walk across the carpark. Try out the seven, Olympic quality trampolines and the super fun ‘tramp park’ with 30 interconnected trampolines and a walled tramp area. The kids want to practice some cooler moves? No problem, they’ll land safely on the super soft air bag or foam pit!  SITE is perfect for the whole family!

Number 4

Feeling hungry yet? Head back into town and have lunch at one of the many family friendly restaurants (we suggest Speights Ale House so you can have a beer). Or grab something on the go from one of the many casual dining places or street food vendors that line Marine Parade.

Number 5

After you’ve refreshed yourselves why not walk to Queenstown gardens for a round of Disc Golf? It’s family friendly and super inexpensive. Start at Queenstown Ice Arena where you can hire the discs and grab a map and scorecard then get the game going. Who’s got the best eye and throwing skills? It’s trickier that it seems!

Number 6

Finish up the day at Cookie time on Camp Street and treat the family to a cookie or one of the amazing shakes before heading back to your accommodation for a well-earned rest!

There you have it folks our top picks for the ultimate family day out in Queenstown.
